Join us to cultivate your creative voice! Come satisfy your inner jewelry maker and join us for a jewelry stamping event. Using the tools provided, we'll cover the basics of stamping and allow plenty of time for you to create a one of a kind necklace for yourself, or for a gift. Be guided through best practices, tips and tricks, along with simple design ideas to create your own original necklace. We will practice stamping on scrap material, then move into creating your own original pieces, using those new skills. No experience necessary! Each participant chooses two (2) blanks to custom stamp and an 18" silver plated chain to create their own one-of-a-kind necklace.

Join us for three fast and furious afternoons of jewelry basics.  We'll look at commercially made findings and how they work, and then we'll make our  own.  We'll see what makes a design wearable or not, and  how to make a good  design even better.  Tools, beads, wire and lots more come under scrutiny. This class is for beginners and those who want to push their jewelry work into new realms.  The more you make, the more you'll learn, so expect homework. Students must purchase approximately $20 of materials to bring to the first class:  round nose pliers, chain  nose pliers, flush or semi-flush cutter, 20 gauge wire and a handful of beads. See details in Special Notice.
